Metro trains were stopped on both sides of the Dupont Circle station Wednesday night for about 30 minutes after a man was struck by a train there, transit officials said.
After about a half-hour more of single-tracking between Farragut North and Van Ness, Metro resumed full service on the Red Line about 8:40 p.m., Metro spokeswoman Caroline Laurin said. The accident was first reported about 7:30 p.m.
Officials said the man, who is 36, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening when he was hit. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said the man was trespassing after he walked from the platform area beyond safety gates into a restricted zone. Transit detectives weren’t able to interview him because he was sedated at a hospital, Stessel said.
